Special Order


Fifty fictional legendary baseball players and their illustrated biographies. Bushers takes a whimsical look at the Deadball Era, long before free agency, luxury boxes and enormous salaries. It's a wild collection of baseball's greatest goofballs, wannabes, could've-beens and never-wases, hailing from every state in the Union--representing actual towns like Nuttsville, Virginia; Parole, Maryland, and Sweet Lips, Tennessee. Bushers tells a tale of fame squandered by wrong-way baserunning, smelly feet, narcolepsy and uncontrollable sweat. With illustrations by Ed Attanasio and text written by Attanasio and Eric Gouldsberry, this graphic novel takes a funny look at baseball's early years through the eyes of two passionate lifelong fans.
